The Department of Homeland Security reportedly warned the Catholic Church of the “Night of Rage” planned by militant pro-abortion groups and the Diocese of Stockton, California, is taking heed.
According to an internal document obtained by Newsweek, the diocese sent an “urgent memo” to all clergy, parish and pastoral staff members recently notifying them of plans by extremist activist groups to attack pro-life organizations, including churches.
The memo indicates that DHS agent Jesse Rangel alerted the diocese that an uncovered manifesto touted calls to attack pro-life facilities starting at 8 pm the night Roe v Wade was overturned.
Rangel told the diocese that “large groups with cells nationwide have already been discovered ‘casing’ parishes, including here in California.” As a result, the diocese issued critical notices for clergy, pastoral staff and parishes to “develop a plan should you hear or see anything suspicious.”
“Make sure you have ushers and or security available during your services and perhaps identify who among your volunteers and parishioners are law enforcement,” the memo continued. “Suspicious activity would include someone asking out of place questions (Largest Mass times? Doors always open? Do you have security?), looking around church property, protestors, and general disturbances.”
On June 7, a national terrorism threat advisory was posted on the DHS website reading in part,
“We expect the threat environment to become more dynamic as several high-profile events could be exploited to justify acts of violence against a range of possible targets. These targets could include public gatherings, faith-based institutions, schools, racial and religious minorities, government facilities and personnel, U.S. critical infrastructure, the media, and perceived ideological opponents. Threat actors have recently mobilized to violence due to factors such as personal grievances, reactions to current events, and adherence to violent extremist ideologies, including racially or ethnically motivated or anti-government/anti-authority violent extremism.”
The bulletin does not specify who the “threat actors” are or if it correlates with violence and vandalism perpetrated against several pregnancy centers and churches immediately following the Roe v Wade Supreme Court opinion leak.
On Friday, the high court officially overturned the 1973 decision that slated abortion as the land law. According to the opinion syllabus, as reported by Fox News, Roe and Casey were overruled in a 5-4 vote.
Now, the nation waits for radical pro-abortion activists and anarchists to engage in the “Night of Rage” and express their fury over the weekend. According to Jane’s Revenge, the radical militant group claiming responsibility for several pro-life organization attacks, “We have agonized over this apparent absence of indignation,” reads the manifesto. “Why is it that we are so afraid to unleash hell upon those who are destroying us? Fear of state repression is valid, but this goes deeper than that.”
The manifesto indicates that a more aggressive approach is warranted since non-profits, feminist organizations and the Democrat party had failed to uphold the right to an abortion.
